Champions League

The 2020/21 Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea is now uncertain because no location has been given since Turkey was added to the UK’s travel red list.

Chelsea and Man City were set to travel to Istanbul for the champions league final on May 29 but the UK on Friday announced which countries would be on the red list, which Turkey has been included on.

As per the Telegraph, The Government is in talks over bringing the Champions League final to England after placing coronavirus-ravaged Turkey on its ‘red list’ for travel.

The announcement sees the top location for the final in huge doubt with current covid restrictions meaning anyone returning would have to pay £1,750 and quarantine in a hotel, including sports people, for 10 days.

Several venues have been suggested including Villa Park and Tottenham’s ground, with Wembley currently in use for the Championship Play-Off final that weekend.

The Secretary of State for Transport, Grant Schapps said: “Fans should not travel to Turkey. The FA are in discussions with UEFA on this. We are very open to hosting the final but it is ultimately a decision for UEFA.”

“Turkey has been added to the red list and therefore no Chelsea supporters can travel to watch the Champions League final. We are meeting with the UEFA president this week and will request that the fixture is moved to the UK.”

Neither Chelsea or Manchester City have yet to make any comment.
